Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, a variety of tactics have been produced to make it more convenient for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is named paper piecing, which is popularly adopted to put together the challenging points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the material segments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to properly stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Procedures such as this are an effective help to our quilt-makers!
